The Perfect Flower Bed Edge
When installing/maintaining a beautiful landscape, spending the time to create a distinct flower bed border will make all the difference in the world. Defined edges allow your landscape to show the contrast between a lush green lawn and a well-manicured bed of flowers, soil, and mulch. Also, edging will help defend against unwanted blades of grass pushing their way into your garden.
Plan & Install
There are many ways to go about landscape edging, which can make the process a creative one. Below we have listed out some of the more common practices used.
Pavers - Want to be sure no grass makes its way into your garden? Using pavers can establish a strong border that will not be penetrated by the neighboring grass.
Metal/Plastic Edging - Create a physical division between your lawn and garden bed.
Stone - Raised stone borders are ideal for slopes because it creates a flat area for your flowerbed.
Trench Edging - Once the edge has been cut, backfill the garden bed with mulch. As the mulch reaches the grass line, slope the mulch downward to create a trench.
While trench edging and metal/plastics will be your most affordable options, when installed correctly, they can still be used throughout luxury landscapes without lacking quality. If you are looking to add a bang to your landscape, consider using raised stone edges or bricks and pavers.
